    Answer: (2) Rs.1500
    Explanation:-

    A and B invest in a business in the ratio = 3: 2
    Let be the total profit = Rs.100
    After paying to charity, A’s share = 95 x 3/5 = Rs.57
    If A share is Rs.57
    Then, total profit = Rs.100
    If A’s share Rs.855
    Then, total profit = 100 x 855/57 = Rs.1500

    Hence, the answer is (2) Rs.1500
